Cash and jewellery have been taken following a break-in at the Los Angeles home of Pirates of the Caribbean actor Orlando Bloom, police have said.

No arrests have been made in the investigation into the burglary which police say happened while the 32-year-old actor was away.

Police were called from the house by one of Bloom's relatives who discovered the burglary.

Police would not comment on the value of the cash and items taken.

The Los Angeles Times has reported that thieves stole artwork, as well as cash and jewellery, to the value of $500,000 (£306,400).

Bloom shot to fame after playing Legolas in 2001's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

He also appeared as Will Turner in the three Pirates of the Caribbean adventure films.
